Beautiful, Hard-wearing Tiles for Your Edmonton Home
Are you in the market for high-quality and durable flooring for your home? If so, you should choose tile. Edmonton’s Bossio Stone Imports can help with your next flooring project. We import many types of tiles for your flooring needs and always offer helpful advice and skilled installations.
Most of the Italian tile we import is porcelain which is known for its exceptional resistance to wear, staining, water absorption and scratching. Because porcelain is so durable and impervious, you can use it with confidence in high-traffic residential or commercial areas. Full-bodied porcelains (tiles that have their colour and pattern throughout) are especially wear resistant. Not only is porcelain durable, it comes in an almost endless array of colours, finishes, and textures. There are even porcelain lines that look like hardwood – an ideal solution if you love hardwood, but perhaps have large dogs!
A Variety of Tiles in Edmonton
At Bossio Stone, on top of our beautiful porcelain tile, we carry natural slate, marble, travertine and granite tile. We also carry several kinds of glass and mosaic backsplash tiles that are perfect for accent walls in your bathroom or kitchen. When you visit our showroom, we will help you find a tile in the perfect colour and style. We will also give you options that meet your expectations for wear, maintenance and cost. In addition to the tiles that we import, we work with most major Edmonton area wholesale tile suppliers. This allows us to supply our customers with just about anything that’s available on the market today.

Advantages of Porcelain Tile
When it comes to flooring options, porcelain tile is one of the most popular. At Bossio Stone Imports, we have many different styles of porcelain tile in Edmonton to choose from. There are many advantages to choosing porcelain flooring tiles including:
- Durability: Porcelain is hard, dense and solid making it one of the most durable flooring options out there. It is resistant to most heavy impact stresses and is even used in commercial environments. When properly installed and maintained, porcelain has the ability to last for decades.
- Liquid and stain resistance: Because porcelain flooring is so dense, it is extremely resistant to liquid penetration when compared to other types of ceramic. This also means porcelain flooring is also very resistant to staining.
- Maintenance: The stain and water resistance of porcelain means it is extremely low maintenance. Just wipe up spills with a damp rag and sweep regularly and your floor should look great for years to come.

Freetime is one of our most popular multipurpose tiles. With five sizes ranging from 2 x 2 mosaic to 18 x 18, you’re only limited by your imagination when you choose one of the five colours of Freetime tile for your floor, walls or backsplash.
Depending on the colour, Eternity is available in flat tile sizes ranging from 6 x 6 up to 12 x 24 and 18 x 18. Cut, stacked strips of Eternity Almond or Multicolour, called Muretto, are sold in solid 12″ x 24″ sections. Muretto strips make a beautiful backsplash, without any of the maintenance common to similar looking natural stone backsplashes. Muretto strips are also popular for fireplace surrounds.
Imported from Italy, we’ve used Glamour Chocolate 12 x 24 and 24 x 24 on our showroom floor. This uniquely patterned durable porcelain is available in five colours.
This elegant large scale floor tile is another we’ve used on our own showroom floor. Maxima is available in five different colours, and is manufactured to look like real stone. Some of the benefits of installing, for example, Maxima Calcutta (which looks like natural marble) are that this porcelain tile is significantly more durable and less prone to scratching and staining than marble. Two of the Maxima colours have a four piece Rosone which, at 48” x 48”, can be a bold design focal point in a dining room or foyer.
Natif Zen Zero and Natif Ginepro are made to resemble wood flooring. Some customers choose them because they love the look of wood, but have very ‘lived-in’ homes that include busy children and pets. The durable scratch-resistance and minimal absorbency of porcelain is a good fit for them, while still offering them the appearance of hardwood.
Designed to look like natural slate, the Primitive Series will give your décor the feel of natural stone, while giving you a floor or wall tile that’s a breeze to maintain. Primitive is an Italian porcelain tile that’s available in three sizes and four slate-like colours.
One of our all-time best sellers, the Riverstone Series is an elegant pairing of durable Italian porcelain with the look of real stone. In four colours, and with sizes ranging from 6 ½” x 6 ½” up to 20” x 20”, creative homeowners and designers can incorporate Riverstone into both floors and backsplash, or possibly even create borders or feature areas on walls or floors using different sizes. Our staff and designers are always happy to help you come up with beautiful solutions for your home.
